Hi all,

The hairstylist told me today that I cannot wash my hair everyday using the normal shampoo (those normal hairloss / dandruff type you see in neighbourhood shops etc), and I must alternate it with moisturizer shampoo (meaning, 3 days of moisturizer shampoo then 1 day of normal shampoo etc.)

She say because I wash with normal shampoo everyday (I wash hair 2 times per day), my hair now has many split ends and is weak and crispy (due to being super dry), doesn't have the volume or natural hold that others' hairs have (on this aspect, she's right, though). I have sea salt spray to prop up the hair but that's not the point.

So, is this accurate? Or is she trying to make me buy another product?
Would like to get a 2nd opinion on this. Tks a lot!

Although its recommended to wash your hair once, I feel its really very hard for guys to just wash the hair once. Minimum also twice imo. Unless you're the kind that don't style your hair then yeah, its possible.

She should be accurate as she's a hairstylist. Ultimately, it depends whether you wanna get hair care products or not.

Most probably she observed that your hair might be too dry and perhaps with symptoms such as split hairs and weak follicles. I can't really judge whether the assertion of not using normal shampoo is right or wrong as there are definitely more people than you can imagine out there, using normal shampoo to wash everyday.

However, what i think should be practised in IMO should be:

1) Wash your hair at most once everyday. U can abide by your habit of washing 2 times per day if you want but i believe no harm in changing your routine to see if it can work out even better.
2) Use deep cleansing shampoo at most 3-4 days per week to cleanse the impurities and excess oils. Even better, use or complement it with acidic shampoo to do the job more thoroughly. It might result in dryness so judge the situation accordingly.
3) Pair off with the use of conditioner 2-3 days per week. Excessive usage will cause it to become oily, at least for me. Death bro mentioned conditioner washing though. Never try it personally but just for additional information.
4) For people with long hair, hair mask is actually important and essential. Nutrients can't be passed to the part of the hair when its more than 5cm. Guys cut their hair often so its okay. This is especially important for females who typically keep their hair long.

In a nutshell, if your hair feels dry after shampoo-ing, do not just ignore it. Signals have already been sent out so get yourself a hydrating or moisturizing shampoo to balance the moist in the hair. Kanebo, IMO, being an acidic shampoo, does a pretty good job on this if anyone is looking for a practical solution. Hope it helps! :)

Almost every brand has its own deep cleansing shampoo. Most of the better brands for deep cleansing shampoo works pretty well.
Redken cleansing cream which is their deep cleanser, you will feel a tingling sensation... at least for me it did.

Tks guys! Can anyone recommend a moisturizer shampoo? Preferably cheap ones that can be found in Watsons or those neighbourhood shops.
Also, for moisturizers, I assume we use it several times a week, then the rest of the week, we use those normal deep cleansing shampoos? As in, pairing them off?

@ Leejhong: The OS spray I got from you previously is insane. When applied in the correct amt + blow dry, it gives me the same effect as those super-thick-voluminous korean hair :D:D:D My hair volume pretty much goes from flat and limp to thick and almost-afro :D

Sry to say... your stylist is full of sh*t... you have short or long hair? If short hair and you found split end is mainly due to blunt thinning scissors used on you. Most of the better stylists will not start with or even use a thinning scissors at all.
It is advisable to switch or interchange shampoos.
Anyway... moisturizing shampoos from store... use Dove or Shiseido Tsubaki, go for red or white.

After recommendation from some bros here. I bought the herbal essence moisturising shampoo. For that affordable price. It has coconut smell. And does its job well for moisturising shampoo. Cost around $8plus

Nevertheless. If you got budget. Just go for the Kanebo shampoo. I tried the sample. It smell nice and moisture adequately! Still waiting patiently for it to restock tho.

yeah, the OS salt spray makes my hair feel full-bodied. For something so simple, the effect is amazing.
